Coffin in the Sky (1999 story)

Written by Koji Suzuki.

Well, this is terribly unnecessary.

Don't get me wrong, it's a nice, atmospheric story with creepy imagery and some decent exploration of Mai Takano, but why did Suzuki think it was a good idea to take a sequence from the novel Spiral, which effectively played on readers' imaginations, and pretty much spoil it by filling in the details?

There's a reason he cut it in the first place.
